It seems a little bit odd to me just how many corneresque stores can manage to survive in just one area. I currently live about a 3 minute walk from a strip mall (well, maybe it's more L-shaped) which has 3 such stores - 2 local ones and something name-brand. Not only that, but it also has a gas station with a small store. How they all manage to survive surprises me.

That little strip mall also happens to have a chinese takeout restaurant and a pizza place. Tonight's fortune cookie:

The day will come when you have to search no longer

So it seems that I do in fact convocate in June...

I noticed something a day or two ago, and posted about that, and now it seems that it is indeed official that I'll be graduating in June as my degree status now shows "approved by senate". Unfortunately, the ceremony is at 9:45am on a Wednesday - far too early to be at SFU - and gowns and that sort of stuff is supposed to be picked up between 8 and 9 am (ignoring that I'm often on campus here at 9am, and for me there would now be a one-hour time difference). To reserve myself some goofy-looking garb, or not?

Two more nights...

A couple of nights longer and then I finally get to sleep on a proper mattress once again (been sleeping on half of a futon mattress borrowed from a roommate since I got here to Calgary). Sleep Country is supposed to be delivering sometime Thursday (unfortunately you don't get your delivery window until that morning), and I got their delivery appointment confirmation call today. It's a might annoying how long that process took though (10 days to special order the thing [which applies to basically anything in the twin XL size], and then another week where it's been sitting in their Calgary warehouse awaiting delivery (as I don't have a truck or van at the moment). I suppose that my room might start to get congested once the thing arrives. I suppose that none of you have really seen any of my furniture yet so I'll have to try to take a photo or two once that arrives.
